In ‘Fahrenheit 9/11,’ filmmaker Michael Moore famously criticized President George W. Bush’s reaction to the news that airliners had struck the World Trade Center towers in New York City on September 11, 2001. Bush, who was visiting with elementary school children that day, sat motionless after his Chief of Staff, Andrew Card, delivered the news — leading many to say his lack of action was proof of poor leadership skills.

In the days before the 10th anniversary of the attacks, the National Geographic Channel sat down with the former president, who explained in his own words what was going through his mind in those moments and the details he still recalls (like Card’s “Massachusetts accent”).
